    This Sunday 8 Sept at 2pm

    Chris Allen Memorial Trophy

    16 rider, 20 heat individual meeting. All riders are connected with either the Coventry club, or come from the Coventry area, including five Bretford riders.

    Chris Allen rode for Brandon Bees. In 1973, in a match at Hearsall Common, Chris collapsed after a race. Sadly, he died shortly afterwards.

    Sundays meeting is in his honour and was first staged in 1974 for Coventry area riders. Due to the fantastic revival and interest in the sport in Coventry again, the meeting is being revived. It is being sponsored by Mike Allen, Chris Allen`s older brother.

    Present day riders Dave Frith and Norman Venson have previously won the Chris Allen Trophy, whilst Joe Mc has won in three times in a row.

    The match is followed by Coventry U13s V Bretford U13s.

    Coventry are at Leicester this Tuesday in the Midland League Div One, 7.30pm start.
